Remember that we already know what a silohuette is: it is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject (Wikipedia).
So let's put it into practice!!!
- We will tape a paper to the wall and had them sit on a chair showing their profile.
- A light will throw a shadow on the paper (white or coloured) that we will trace with a pencil.
- We will cut along the line to get our silhouette.

Josef Albers' book Interaction of Colour (1970) is widely influential. Albers claims that colours react when they are next to another colour. We should never consider the characteristics of a colour as absolute, but always relating to the enviroment.
